C3s JK Rubicon - Norway

Hi

Not many JK Rubicons in Norway right now. Actually I got the first one when they started to sell them over here. Had to wait about 6 months to get it.

Since there are few JKs overall it was hard to get all the information about how to build it the way I wanted. Even worse is the extra cost. From factory my Rubicon costed well over 80 000 US$. Now I have used about 30 000 US$ on building it the way I want.

One of the reasons for all this extra costs are the high taxes on cars and accessories here in Norway.

Guess you will see that my JK has green license plates. This indicate that it has only two seats total. The back-seats are taken out and a wall is built right behind the driver/co-pilot seats. This way the vehicle comes under tax category "lorry". If I wanted the back seats, I would have to pay well over 130 000 US$ in total from "factory"

Crazy shit, yes in deed.

But, anyway, Im glad I finally got a new Wrangler. The short version is to little to be allowed taxed as a "lorry". So it was after the Unlimited version that it was in reach of buying for normal people.

Underneath you will see pictures from the day I got it and until now. Sadly my wheels got stolen so right now I only have stock winter tires from Cooper. Soon I will try to fit 37s on it. I also have 35s Baja Claw that I use during summertime. But, since we have 9 months of winter, I need some bigger winter tiers with nails and stuff

Delivered from the local Jeep dealer


First time out in the snow


Mounted 4" ProComp Stage II, 1" BL, sidesteps and some extra exterior stuff


Flexing with Micky Thomson Baja Claw on stock wheels


Out wheeling on 1st of May 2009. Still more then enough snow in the mountains


Finally, after waiting 4 months the wilderness rack from Garvin Industries, new fenderflares, lights, Hi-Lift and some other stuff arrived from the US


Mountain trip not far from my home. New skid-plate. The stock one got ripped off after crossing a deep mud-ditch on liberty day (17th of May)

TUV Certified wheels. Norwegian law, dont even get me started. You dont know how lucky you guys are when it comes to building your Jeeps. Here we need approval for any change of the vehicle. These wheels was the only one I was abel to get with the necessary documents








Out in the snow with stock tiers again

Those are some amazing and gorgeous pictures. Several look as though they could be used in Jeep advertisements.

Yes, it is 130,000. But that is if you want to have all the five seats mounted. And that is the "funny" part. So much extra just for 3 extra seats.

If I was able, we would move to the US. But, you know, you need a Green Card to be able to work and all that.

I have to agree with all the others, those are some great photos of a beautiful country. If I did'nt know better I would think I was looking at a Jeep add. Like the mods, especially the Bushwacker pocket flares. Bad break on the stolen tires/wheels. Nothing worse than a thief. Welcome to JKO.
